Pat McGrath Dream Lover MatteTrance Lipstick ($38.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, dusty pink-coral with moderate, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had rich color coverage in a single layer, but the product separated along my deeper lip lines and settled into them over time, which made it a higher-maintenance lip color to wear.
The texture was smooth, moderately dense, and creamy with more of a velvety slip as it didn't feel overly wet/emollient. It stayed on well for four and a half hours and felt non-drying over time.
